Jimmy Snuka Deemed Mentally Unfit To Stand Trial

The trial of Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka over his role in the long-unsolved mystery of his then-girlfriend’s death in 1983 looks like it may not happen, as a psychologist testifying for the defense stated that Snuka is mentally incompetent, following years of brain damage caused by his wrestling career. The trial has been adjourned until Wednesday, at which point the prosecution will present their experts that are expected to argue that Snuka is completely fit to stand trial, citing recent public appearances where Snuka allegedly was lucid.

If the court finds that Snuka is indeed incapable of adequately defending himself in court, it is extremely unlikely the trial would continue, and Snuka would likely be released into some sort of medical care.
